Former Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic showed off his private museum filled with accolades and shirts he collected over his stellar career.
The 38-year-old enjoyed the most fruitful time of his career at Stamford Bridge, where he made a total of 377 appearances during a trophy-laden nine-year spell from 2008-2017.
Ivanovic left Chelsea as one of their most decorated players in history after winning 10 trophies including three FA Cups, three Premier League titles, one each of the League Cup, the FA Community Shield, the Europa League and the Champions League.
Now, he has shown off all the trophies he has won in a viral clip uploaded to the popular social media platform, TikTok.
The Serbian was seen showing off the trophies he won at Chelsea, along with accolades from his time with Lokomotiv Moscow and Zenit Saint Petersburg. All the trophies are placed in one room which appeared to have been turned into Ivanovic’s private museum.
Aside from the trophies, there are also hundreds of shirts that he has collected throughout his long career. There is also a blue Chelsea bicycle within the museum.
When Ivanovic left Chelsea, he joined Russian side Zenit before coming back to England to represent West Brom during the 20/21 season. The defender called time on his career after his spell with the Baggies ended.
One of the most memorable moments from Ivanovic’s career was when Sky Sports presenter Geoff Shreeves told him that due to a yellow card, he was going to miss the 2012 Champions League. When told the news, Ivanovic’s reaction went viral as he looked extremely confused.

I am basically the man who shot Bambi live on Television. There is a golden rule in TV that you should never make the viewer feel uncomfortable and trust me, they were behind the sofa with cushions after that.
“But, the strange thing is. When I explain it in full, it was the perfect storm. We didn’t know if he had been booked. He thought he had been booked but he wasn’t sure. Madly, Roberto di Matteo, who was the manager at the time, didn’t remind the players who were on yellows that they were as he wanted them to be fully committed.
“So, in his head, he still thinks he is playing. Therefore, when I said you know you’re not playing in the final, he looked totally confused. So, now I have to tell him, ‘no, you’re not playing. You’re not getting this. It was just awful. Could I have done it better? Of course, I could have. But, hindsight is a wonderful gift.”
